Global Experience made my summer amazing!!! They found the perfect job for me it was exactly what i wanted in an internship. Everyday was a new adventure and I learned so much! I couldn't have asked for better! The housing was very nice and they went above and beyond with their program and staff! I truly have nothing bad to say! This program was an experience of a life time and I could not be where i am now with out it!

Going to Dublin for an internship was a thought that remained imaginary for me even after I was accepted. I'm a first generation student from a low socio-economic family, so I constantly had the "this can't happen for me" thought. However, after multiple communicative transactions with the GE crew, I began to think that this adventure was going to happen. I was put into an apartment with great people that I have the honor to call friends, I traveled, I tried new things that took me out of my comfort zone, and I expanded my professional network. I would suggest to everyone reading this to travel while you still have the time!

Starting from day 1 of enrollment, the GE staff has been there for me in every way possible to ensure I had a placement that I would enjoy. And I did! I loved the company I got placed in and working with my bosses. Over the transition period when we moved into Spain and throughout the summer as a whole, the GE program advisors in Barcelona have gone above and beyond in making certain that everyone has a smooth adaptation period and a great summer. Interning abroad this summer has been an experience that I will cherish forever and the connections and friendships made here will always remain close to my heart. 10/10 would recommend grabbing this opportunity with GE because it really is more than just an internship abroad - it is a life-changing experience full of personal and professional growth!
